Kathryn C. Carter

Corporate Law, Commercial Law, Estate Planning, Trusts

Trusts and Estate Planning Lawyer

Solving problems is Kay’s strong suit. She is once again an Albertan after spending four years in the Cayman Islands working with Solomon Harris, where she assisted international clients with business structuring and reorganizations and provided advice regarding the creation, maintenance and dissolution of trusts.

Prior to moving to Grand Cayman, Kay’s career consisted primarily of practicing corporate income tax within the oil and gas industry, where she provided assistance with mergers and acquisitions, cross-border transactions and financings. She also provided assistance to owner-operated businesses, did estate planning and practiced resource law. In Grand Cayman, Kay added expertise in the area of captive insurance and broadened her expertise in trust law.

With respect to her work in the Cayman Islands, Kay is a Recommended Attorney as evaluated by Chambers Global and Legal 500 for 2012 and 2013.

In addition to having a passion for horses, Kay loves to create things. She has made several elaborate costumes for Arabian horses, which have appeared in the Stampede Parade. She de-stresses by making jewelry and doing needlework. However, these hobbies do take a back seat to playing with her granddaughters!
